` CBR Orders Six Ukrainian Banks in Crimea and Sevastopol to Stop Trading ‘

#AceFinanceNews – MOSCOW – May 13  – The Central Bank of Russia has ordered six Ukrainian banks to stop operations in Crimea and Sevastopol starting from May 13, the regulator said in a statement.

In passing the decision, the CBR referred to Article 7 of the federal law dated April 2, 2014, on specifics of the functioning of Crimea’s and Sevastopol’s financial system during the transitional period.

Among the banks are Kiev-based Terra Bank, Odessa-based Finrostbank, Kiev-based  Bank “Finance and Credit”, Kiev’s Commercial Bank “Financial Initiative”, Dnipropetrovsk-based Accent-Bank and Kiev’s Avant-Bank.

According to the CBR statement, the banks have failed to fulfil their obligations.

Therefore, they were closed in compliance with the Russian legislation.

The decision was dictated by the task to protect the interests of depositors and clients, whose legitimate interests were violated as the above banks stopped operation in Crimea and Sevastopol with no prospects for resuming work.

There was no other opportunity to ensure effective protection of rights of the depositors and clients of these banks, except by stopping their operation, the CBR said.

#AceFinanceNews – Moscow – March 19 – Transition of banks operating in Crimea from the payment system of the National Bank of Ukraine to that of the Central Bank of Russia will be not difficult, although Russia has had no such precedents before, former Central Bank of Russia deputy chairman Konstantin Korishchenko told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.

Transition of Crimea’s banks under control of the Russian regulator will proceed painlessly, as “the system of correspondent relations exists between banks and any payments can be carried out within this system for a rather long time,” he said, adding that there would be no difficulties with personnel training.

Moreover, the transition process would create no reasons for curtailing business of certain banks, he said. #ANS2014
